It is with great sadness that I advise you all that our patron Richard Bell(pictured here on the left of Kevin Ashton) passed away late last week.

Richard was a great servant of our club and Canterbury Tennis, and will be sorely missed by his many friendsĀ and fellow tennis players.

Our thoughts are with Lexie, daughter Emma, her husband Mark and their two daughters.


Yours sincerely,

Lloyd Russell,
